I am out of my depth. Yesterday I was just a CIA languages geek, safe behind a desk. I thought I wanted a taste of the action. Then I met him: Luka, an arms dealer in the Russian Mafia. A man who'll kill to get what he wants. And he wants me. Now I'm on a plane to Moscow with orders to "accidentally" run into Luka again. Seduce him. Sleep with him. I can't control myself when I'm near him. And if he finds out who I really am, I'm dead.

LYING AND KISSING
This story was an extraordinary read and had all of the elements that kept me reading until the very last page. Once I began reading I literally could not stop. The plot was superb and one that I had not expected. The characters were soooo well developed that I felt like I was walking in their shoes. Their emotions so raw and exposed on every level and their sexual heat and chemistry were off the charts. The interaction between Luka and Arianna was electricity in the air personified and the tension too much to handle at times. It kept me the reader on the edge not knowing what to expect from one scene to the next. The suspense at times had me holding my breath. Luka's dialogue and innuendos to Arianna were like butter melting from his mouth and once they met she could never have guessed how it was going to change her dull and boring life.
L and K is my favorite book by Helena Newbury. Her main character, Arianna from Wisconsin who works in the languages sub-basement of the CIA, falls sideways into a dangerous mission, which she chooses to accept for secret, personal reasons. Her mark, Luka, a Moscow-based guns smuggler, has been one of the Russian high value targets whose tapped phone conversations she has been translating and transcribing for years. One phone sex conversation between Luka and a girlfriend was so graphic that Arianna replayed it 52 times. :-). (The unusual number of replays flagged an alert for her boss, who came to check that Arianna was not stuck on translating a word or phrase). Arianna expects that the voice she has been hearing belongs to an older gentleman; imagine her surprise when she encounters him face to face and discovers he is enormous, handsome and a contemporary. He finds her intriguing, too. Recommend!
A geeky C.I.A. agent listening and transcribing Russian calls by wiretap gets turned on by the sexy phone sex calls Lukas made to his girlfriend's while looking for information about illegal gun running. She gets a chance to meet Lucas while he is in U.S. pretending to belong to a quartet hired to play music at his rented house. If you like intrigue, and sexy scenes, this is a book you'll want to read again and again. It will quickly become one of your favorite reads. This is an author you'll look for other books she's written, she's that good!
